This is a unique raku pottery plate. Even if I applied the glaze in exactly the same way and followed the same firing schedule, the surface could never be replicated.
The raku pottery is a Japanese technique created to the tea ceremony. It is a plate handmade ideal as a soap dish, home decoration, empty pockets, container. Although the ancient raku pottery was used to drink tea today is no longer used to hold food and drink because I use a clay porous. The raku pottery is very durable because it should be cooked at 1000° and undergoes a thermal shock in the processing but it must be washed by hand and not in the dishwasher.
Craqueleur that is formed during the processing is the decorative feature of this technique and it can never be replicated in an identical manner between one object and another, for this the Raku ceramic is unique and very valuable. This plate is all handmade by me.
thi is a perfect idea for your love or for wedding!
